Yep, I’m Late to the crypto mining game, but here I am. I barely have any good GPUs, in a time where you need LOTS, but still, HERE I AM.

Since my gaming rig sits unused 99.9% of the time, I opted to use that box and its GPU.

So far it looks like, if I run it 99% load, 24hours, I can mine about 5$ in BTC a day.

Will need to back that down to < 99%

Will need to find some additional GPUs, I’m currently using a single Radeon RX5700XT, so I might start with a 2nd one to see where it goes. If I can mine 150$ a month per card, and a card is 400$, 90 days and I’ll be good.

Here’s to profit!

I’ve run my DMR repeater for quite some time using vertically separated antennas, which works, but not very well, finally got a set of these so I can have a little better range.

Midland Land Mobile Model and Features Table
The Syntech I (AKA Syntech 1 or ST1) uses a “Z-273” module to hold the codeplug in a UV-erased PROM – i.e. the frequency and tone information. Changing anything requires erasing the PROM chip under a UV light and then reprogramming it with the 70-1000 stand-alone programmer, or the 70-1000c programmer which uses a PC to reprogram the eprom module. The Syntech II (AKA Syntech 2 or ST2) and XTR have a programming connector for programming by a PC using the the 70-1308A cable. The ST1s were made in the early 1980s… the XTR was the transition model between the I and the II, it and the ST2s came out in very late 80s/early 90s. The STI control head has blue pushbuttons, the ST2 head has white buttons. The newest models are the Bantam and Titan models. The Bantam radios are the smallest, programmed through the RJ-45 microphone connector with the 70-1309 programmer in line between the radio and a PC serial port. The Titan models are their current production units. The Securicor radios are Titans that were manufactured during the time Midland was owned by Securicor (Midland is now back under its own name).

I’m walking through the back yard, and I find this 16 Meg memory stick, laying in the dirt.  I pick it up, and plug it into a card reader.  It shows as blank, but using some recovery software, I find 8 pics.  Boring pics, but still amusing.  A small window into the lives of those that lived in this house before me.

Some of you will get a laugh out of this.   Looking back through emails from the past, I stumbled upon an email that we all got a laugh about…  One of the early on hires at Voxeo, didn’t really fit in with our corporate culture, and he was sure everything we were doing was wrong.  Finally, we were freed from him, and this is a personal email he sent to myself, the CEO, and another employee.  Good stuff.  We had about 1/2 day of laugh from this one.  Those that know him, will laugh remembering.

Dear Rob. You are most welcome. As I do not remember uttering any kind words to your face, but only civil, professional interaction, always with tension and undisguised mistrust.

In any event, there is truly justice in the universe and people eventually do get what they deserve. Running a business is not a social event, as will continue to be evident. Anyway, with luck our paths will not cross again.

And I do agree Carlos is GOLD!

Mark

He went on publicly to talk about how Voxeo would be out of business in 3 months, and he would get the last laugh.  Well, its been 7 years and 3 months.  He must have meant 8 years and 3 months.  That must be it.

Who is to be blamed for this?  Higgins!
